I’ve always had an interest in electronics and as a keen guitarist I decided to set myself a project of building my own guitar pedal. During the summer break of my first year of University I found a schematic for a classic fuzz pedal, the ‘Zvex Fuzz Factory’.

Below are photo’s of the finished pedal and a video demonstrating it in use.

The front-end of the pedal was designed to still resemble the original (similar size, layout, colour, etc).


In the demo the signature ‘squealing’ feedback of the Fuzz Factory is shown, along with a dry/wet comparison.
